I saw this dress and just knew I had to have it. Lucky for me I had a ModCloth gift card laying around and only ended up having to pay $6 out of my own pocket! This light blue dress is the best of both worlds: cute and spring-like, yet extremely comfortable. It's basically like wearing a big t-shirt.


The weather here is sunny, but it doesn't get truly warm until mid-afternoon, so dressing in layers is a must! I added maroon knee-highs for warmth, a little plaid jacket, and plaid shoes.


I liked the outfit as-is, but it seemed to be missing a bit of sparkle. I found a beautiful mint green watch at SparkleOn that went perfectly with the color of my dress. The watch face surrounded by rhinestones added all the glitz I needed. The roman numerals add some elegance to the look so that the plaid is balanced out by the breezy dress and watch.

    1. Thank you! Over the knee socks are a definite go-to for me in cold weather. You should pull them out of your drawer sometime before the weather gets too warm! :)

  18. I would never have thought to layer a plaid button-up over a dress, but I really like the look! So creative and laid-back. And mint is such a great color - it looks good on you!
